Detail of Fanny Daw's Diary

Fanny Elizabeth Franklin's (nee Daw/e) Album

(My Great Grandmother)

A beautiful leather bound album. Unfortunately time and inquisitive hands have taken their toll.
Fannny Franklin (nee Dawe), her daughter Eva Guest (nee Franklin) and my mother Agnes Guest (nee Ralston) all
contributed to identifying the portraits but unfortunately some still remain unidentified or unknown.

Inscription on inside cover.
